responsible use of technology
Bishop Ireton High School has a core curricular goal of a commitment to developing 21st century skills. As a result of this goal, students are required to utilize several approved technologies both at home and in school. As a Catholic Salesian Community of Learning we are committed to fostering a spirit of ethical and responsible use of Technology. Our expectation is that everyone in our community will adhere to following policy and ensure the creation of a safe and productive learning and teaching environment.
These guidelines are designed to apply to any technology resource whether provided by the family or by Bishop Ireton for use at school. While on campus technology resources are to be used strictly for educational purposes. The following agreement outlines general expectations for behavior both appropriate and inappropriate uses of technology. The school requires that students follow the general expectations for student behavior outlined in the student handbook when using technology. Any person or persons found in violation of this policy will be assessed consequences such as: detentions, suspension, expulsion and /or legal action. Bishop Ireton will cooperate with law enforcement if the activities are prohibited by law or related to any potentially illegal activity conducted on our network and on the Bishop Ireton campus. In addition to on campus infractions, the school reserves the right to investigate and apply disciplinary consequences for technology related activities off campus if the activity threatens the safety, well-being, or reputation of our community and its members.
As technologies and technology uses continue to evolve a single policy cannot hope to be all inclusive but the following rules hope to make clear the School’s stance on responsible use, and disciplinary action related to actions not stated here is at the discretion of the faculty and administration.
